Zach Klein was looking for his happy place.An internet entrepreneur, Klein says it was around 2007 when he started yearning for a home away from home. A quiet place somewhere in upstate New York. A small plot of land where he could build a quaint cabin and just … escape.This was pre-Pinterest, and Tumblr was the newest, hottest thing around, so Klein started a simple blog where he kept photos and stories of some of the most incredible remote cabins around. They were his inspiration.Thinking no one was ever going to see it, he gave his blog what he admits is a “silly name.” He called it Cabin Porn.Pretty soon, though, Klein decided to share Cabin Porn with the world, and before he knew it, its popularity exploded. All photos via Cabin Porn, used with permission. In the beginning, Klein was finding all of the cabins he shared himself.Soon, the project was so popular that fans were sending in their own photos and stories.”To date, we’ve published 1,600 cabins,” Klein says. “There are another 16 or 17,000 submitted that we haven’t processed yet.”The ultimate measure of the site’s popularity: Comedian/lumberjack Nick Offerman has said Cabin Porn is one of his favorite sites on the internet.There’s no doubt the photos are beautiful and the landscapes serene, but Klein says the fascination with Cabin Porn (also now on Instagram) goes much deeper.First, “I think it glamorizes a life that’s simple and small and effective,” he says. “I’m surprised how often the remoteness of the cabin is the object of people’s affection.”Second, Klein references the basic pleasures most of us recognize from vacations that take us far away from the beaten path.”It’s about being outside, being with friends, being cozy, playing games, reading books, cooking, hiking,” he says. “All the simple things we all want but don’t get enough of.”Klein adds that our full, busy lives, jam-packed with computer screens and unlimited connection are like “eating bowl after bowl of sugary cereal.” Cab

I’ve got 5 tattoos in my body and, at the moment, I like them as they are. In addition, my tattoos are not excessively big and they are quite hidden. However, there are lots of people that really enjoy having new tattoos which remind them people and life stages.

Having the possibility of living in 2 countries (UK and Spain, but mostly in the UK!) is something that makes me feel really lucky. It also allows me to appreciate the beauty and resources of each country. My family house in Spain is a flat, big enough for us but nothing really luxurious.

Inauguration Day is upon us. Soon, President Barack Obama will sail off into the sunset, and Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as our new commander in chief. Yup. Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images. There’s no stopping this. As of Jan. 20, Trump will be your president and mine. If you’re feeling lost or hopeless, it’s OK. A lot of people are feeling the same. It may be too late to undo the results of the election, but it’s never too late to do whatever you can to stand up for what you believe in. What better time to turn your feelings into action than than during the inauguration itself? Here are 25 things you can do during Trump’s inauguration ceremony to make the world a slightly less scary place: 1. Make donations to organizations whose work will be more important than ever in the next four years.Lots of important and life-saving organizations are going to need your help to survive a Trump administration, and they rely heavily on donations like yours. If you have some cash to spare, consider a one-time or recurring donation to Planned Parenthood, (which is hosting a $20 donation drive on Jan. 20), the NRDC, the International Refugee Assistance Project, or the Trevor Project for LGBTQ Youth. There’s also the NAACP, the National Network of Abortion Funds, Black Girls Code, the ACLU, National Women’s Law Center, NARAL, Girls Write Now, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and Purple Purse. That’s just to name a few.2. Call or write to your representatives to let them know you want them to stand against attacks on civil rights.I know, you’ve probably heard that suggestion about a thousand times. Well there’s a reason: It works! It’s also a lot easier than you think. Look up who your representative is and find their publicly available contact information. Then you can call or write a message to them saying that, as their constituent, you hope they will stand by the issues that make a difference to you. Photo by Mark Wilson/Getty Images. Don
